Default Rage (best first person shooter of 2011)

How is this game not getting that much love? It has a Metacritic score of 80. That's not a bad score but I'd say it's like a 9.5 type of game. The best first person shooter of 2011. Seriously guys, try this game out. I have nothing but good things to say about it.

What about the ending? I mean I liked the game but that was kinda bullshit.

I haven't finished it yet. I'm about 7 and a half hours in.

I agree with both of you. I really enjoyed Rage. It sounded awesome with my new gaming headset and I really got into it. I loved some of the erratic attack patterns the enemies used. Yes, the ending was too abrupt. It needed more.

Dead City was intense as hell with head phones on. They did a really great job with the sound design.

And it's hard to believe the game runs at 60 frames per second considering how good the graphics are.

Yeah Dead City sounded creepy and intense. The combat shotgun had a nice BOOM! It is a beautiful game, but I had it on the ps3. It had texture pop-in which I didn't notice after awhile....got used to it.

I was telling my friends that Rage was underrated. I even bought some copies for my nephews and they think it's sick.

Haven't played it online and probably never will. I bought it for the sole purpose of the single player campaign.

Just finished it. Most abrupt and lame ending I've ever seen. The 1st disk was definitely stronger than the 2nd disk.

I loved the game though. The gameplay, graphics, and sound design were just top-notch. Story could have been better. It wasn't bad, I just feel like they didn't put a whole lot of effort into the plot. But at least the characters were somewhat interesting.

9/10 overall.
